GAP8 is a System-on-a-Chip that enables massive deployment of low-cost intelligent devices that capture, analyse, classify and act on fusion of rich data sources such as images, sounds or vibrations. GAP8 integrates everything necessary to acquire from sensor, pre-process, analyse and act on rich data sources integrated into a single device. This allows GAP8 to have an energy efficiency that is compatible with operation for years on batteries and a system cost that enables massive deployment of embedded, intelligent devices.
GAP8’s extended instruction set and hierarchical, highly integrated architecture allow it to deliver power and cost efficiency in wide range of AI and signal processing tasks used in processing rich data.
GAP8 can deliver more power efficiency over a wider range of compute tasks than any other ultra-low power processor available today. This allows device manufacturers to integrate artificial intelligence and advanced classification into autonomous wireless edge devices in many different application areas.
GAP8 is based on many years of research into ultra-low-power parallel processors carried out in the Parallel Ultra Low Power (PULP) project by ETH Zurich and the University of Bologna. This heritage results in an extremely rich, integrated architecture in an IoT Application Processor that delivers low power operation in real customer use cases.
